Welcome To The Maldives Travel Guide
Assalaa mu alaikum! Welcome to our Maldives country guide! This guide mostly reflects our stay at Lux South Ari Atoll Resort as this is where we spent the majority of our time in the Maldives. We chose this resort because we loved their romantic overwater villas and this particular resort is located in an area where it is highly likely to see whale sharks on the reef during anytime of the year. This was especially important for us as we planned to be here in the off-season month of September and we really wanted to see marine life while visiting. Luckily for us, our stay at Lux was exactly what we were hoping for and more.
What can I expect from the Maldives?
In the Maldives (and specifically at Lux South Ari Atoll Resort) you can expect a luxurious stay right on the turquoise blue waters of the Indian ocean. You’ll find yourself receiving a warm welcome complete with waving employees, warm towels, and cold drinks as soon as your seaplane arrives at the dock. You’ll likely see an array of sea life including the elusive whale shark, manta rays, tropical fish, reef sharks, sting rays, dolphins, turtles, and flying fish to name a few. If you choose Lux South Ari Atoll as your resort you will also discover daily surprises including free coffee every morning, bottles with hidden surprises inside, free ice cream from an ice cream truck two times daily, free house snorkeling and some free water sports. You will likely spend a good majority of your days relaxing in the infinity pool outside of your villa, in the beehive hammock on the patio, or floating around in the ocean just below. Other options for daily activities include snorkeling on the house reef, scuba diving trips, yoga classes, creating art at the junk art studio, visiting the wish tree and leaving your wishes, and borrowing books from the on resort library to name a few. For food options, you can expect to find breakfast buffets with many stations and options to satisfy any palate. Your dinners can also be buffets, some of which are themed, or you can choose a la carte options. Regardless of how you choose to spend your days, you can expect to be spoiled by luxury like you’ve never seen before!
